Right Place, Wrong time
June 22, 2017
I rolled over and looked at the clock, in ten minutes my alarm would go off, so I decided to get an early start. My Sundays usually begin at 4:34 a.m. but it hardly seemed worthwhile to go back to sleep for ten minutes, so I got up.
As I headed for the bathroom to get ready for the day my mind went to my message, and it went blank. I couldn’t remember what I was supposed to be preaching on. And then I remembered, and my next thought was “I just preached that, yesterday.” It was then I realized that it was Monday, not 10 minutes before my alarm was supposed to go off but 2 hours before my alarm was supposed to go off.
Sometimes we can be at the right place at the wrong time, or sometimes the right time and the wrong place.
The trick is to be in the right place at the right time, which means to be where God wants you to be when He wants you to be there. And you won’t know the where and the when unless you’re in communication with God. Are you talking to Him? That’s called prayer. Are you listening to Him? That happens by reading His word.
Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
